During Sony’s E3 2016 press conference, the company gives Activision a space to reveal a trailer for the forthcoming Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered.
Activision had already confirmed to fans that Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered footage would be making its way to E3 2016, but that didn’t make it any less exciting when the on-stage screens switched from the space-based combat of Infinite Warfare over to the memorable sniper mission in Pripyat. Fans in the crowd were evidently excited to see more footage of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered, and with good reason.
Sony’s exciting E3 2016 lineup brings plenty of nostalgia for veteran gamers, as the company is also bringing back remastered games from the Crash Bandicoot franchise. While some may raise legitimate concerns that nostalgia isn’t good for the gaming industry, we can’t help but want to replay the Pripyat mission all over again, or clear the boat in Crew Expendable. Modern Warfare was one of the best games of its time, although not all gamers think the remaster should come bundled with Infinite Warfare.
Gamers can take a look at the E3 2016 trailer for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered below:
The trailer ends by revealing that gamers playing from the PlayStation 4 console will be able to access the campaign for Modern Warfare Remastered 30 days earlier than Xbox One gamers, which is sure to make Sony fans happy. Gamers can get access to this by pre-ordering the Deluxe version of the game online. The trend of early access for Sony gamers began last year with Call of Duty: Black Ops 3, marking the end of an era of Xbox One early access with Activision titles.
The remastered production will bring several graphic improvements to the title, ranging from dynamic lighting and VFX particles to improved textures and audio. The reception the game has received has been very positive ever since the game was announced, which is more than can be said of the game with which it comes bundled.
The game will include the full single player campaign with ten multiplayer maps, and gamers will be able to get a much more in-depth look at the action during the Call of Duty XP event in September. Until then, nostalgic players will have to keep watching the above trailer – or play the original game, of course.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered is set to arrive for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on November 4, 2016 as a digital download, which is exclusive to those who own the Legacy Edition, Legacy Pro, and Digital Deluxe Edition of Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare.
